IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO DE­VELOP PA­PUA

The Jakarta Post - JPlus - - Talk Of The Town -

The For­eign Min­istry’s di­rec­torate of tech­ni­cal co­op­er­a­tion re­cently or­ga­nized a work­shop ti­tled “Ex­plor­ing Pa­pua’s Po­ten­tial for South-South Co­op­er­a­tion” that put the prov­ince’s growth in fo­cus.

At the event, Pa­puan fig­ures such as artist Jimmy Hen­drick Af­far, “no­ken” weaver Merry Do­gopia and culi­nary ex­pert Charles Toto came to­gether to talk about ways to de­velop Pa­pua.

“We greatly ap­pre­ci­ate the en­deavor to bring us all to­gether in or­der to lis­ten to ideas con­trib­uted by Pa­puans on how to de­velop Pa­pua,” said Mar­shall Suebu.

Suebu is known for estab­lish­ing a school teach­ing Pa­puan chil­dren to love na­ture and avoid smok­ing, al­co­hol and drugs.

“It’s never too late to de­velop Pa­pua,” said Af­far.
